Just put a power outlet on my Vee. To use for GPS, phone charging and hopefully some heated gear this winter, tired of riding COLD!
Got a generic outlet that had two clips for hooking to a battery. Cut those off, put a round terminal on each lead, drilled a hole in the left front corner of the storage tray and fed the wire through to the respective battery terminals. Ended up shortening the + lead and re-crimping another round terminal end so it looks even more "custom" than having excess wire balled up.
Now I have an outlet that sits nicely in the tray, and it with my tank bra, I can feed the wire up close to the handlbar and power the GPS. Phone sits nicely under the seat, charging up overnight while on the road, and ready to go!
Should work as well for heated gear this winter.
